Funding Bilingual Kinders – A Victorian First

Glen Education McKinnon Kindergarten were thrilled to host the Premier Daniel Andrews, Minister for Early Childhood Education Jenny Mikakos and Member for Bentleigh Nick Staikos, to announce the single largest state investment in kinder infrastructure in Victoria’s history.

The Budget provides an additional $17.9 million to give at least 3,000 children attending state-funded kinders the opportunity to learn a language other than English for the very first time. Thousands more children will also be able to attend kindergarten, with almost $43 million to build, upgrade and improve early learning facilities across Victoria, as part of the Victorian Budget 2018/19.
